her debut single 'what rock'n'roll looks like (ft. lil wayne)' didn't do too much damage on the charts, but her visuals/style/general 'tude have always interested me...and hopefully second single 'naughty naughty' will get the attention it deserves :)
so, as regular readers may know i've not been too happy about the confusion over her latest era's artwork... BUT she has brought the heat with the official covers! strong theme, purdy pictures, hot type, you know that's what simonsez likes :) so i decided to get them all together and show them off in all their glory!
everyone loves a re-release! the 'platinum edition' is basically the standard form, including the original album, new single 'domino' and two brand new songs ('shadow' and 'laserlight', premiered exclusively on her latest tour!). the set will also include: "sleeve notes + exclusive pictures from Jessie's personal collection"... i'm assuming that means an expanded booklet!
the 'deluxe edition' includes all of the above PLUS a DVD of all this era's videos, interviews and 6 live performances. liking the idea of the new artwork, there looks like a sheen to the covers and a foil coating on the "jessie j" logo (depending on what edition it is: silver for the 'platinum' and gold for the 'deluxe'). excited?
i originally posted about one of the newest up-and-coming pop gals a while back when she recorded with doctor rosen rosen. now she's releasing her latest (and hottest to date!) single, 'let's get naughty'. the artwork is a pretty straightforward affair (getting a feel of madge's 'celebration'/greatest hits' artwork), love that logo especially!
here's some of her earlier artwork (her debut EP and a remix cover):
so a whiiiile back (july) i posted (wrongly) about the 'without you' artwork... and here is the official cover :D. loving all these covers for the 'nothing but the beat' era!! simple, graphic and damn good!
so, i originally posted about the MAJAH CONFUSION over pixie's artwork for this era so far... and now a deluxe edition version of the 'young foolish happy' album has surfaced... is it real? what's with the sloppiness of the artwork unveiling? i will update when things become clear...if they ever do...
p.s. on a lighter note, i am loving the visuals that are surfacing though haha, don't get me wrong! just want to know what's official and what's not...don't want to be bringing you any fan-mades!!
i had posted her single artwork earlier in the week and now the album artwork has arisen as well :) love the image, love the colours, love the kinda "photo shoot" effects around the edges...hate how generic the type is, sorry bex... but century gothic is in the hands of any microsoft word user...STEP THAT TYPE GAME UP!
UPDATE : so another cover has surfaced...on amazon and other sites where the album can be pre-ordered, is one the standard and the other the deluxe edition artwork?
UPDATE 2 : although it doesn't appear on either of the covers, the album is to be titled 'heaven'.
UPDATE 3 : the album's title has been added to the artwork. check that, and a little added rant by simonsez, out here
supposedly not happy with the the original title "super super hits: the best of..." (calling it "cheesy" and saying "what hits?!"... love joss!), the greatest hits package has been retitled and finally released, check it outtt...
also found the back cover... really love when multiple different types are used together (well!), reminds me of this lil' slice as well.
so excited for this to be released! firstly 'the remix' artwork, a one CD remix album and then secondly 'the collection', including the original 'born this way' album, 'born this way the remix' album and the 'monsterball tour' DVD. too good.
p.s. i've sad it before, i'll say it again... love this whole of her visuals this era, they are giving me lifffe!! :D so unique within each one, but such a strong link throughout them all.
said to include "2 extra tracks, photos, facts and plenty of insider info not available on the standard edition"... signed versions of this edition are also available for a limited time from their website.
UPDATE : check out my HQ, cover to cover post on this beautiful edition here
it's nearly herrrre!! :D the 9 x 12" vinyl, limited edition box set is being released on november 8th and it's been a long wait since all the little monsters pre-ordered it and uploaded their photo to the fan mosaic in may...FEAST YOUR EYES ON THESE BEAUTIES (including some never-before seen images from the nick knight 'born this way' photo shoot)!
